Looking through this thread, there are quite a few suggestions for subjects, namely;

Autumn Mists
Wonder of Nature
Bridges
Weird and Whacky
Mobile phone pictures
Minimalism
Dressed for the cold
+
Harvest Time
Seasonal cheer
Last two from me.

The mobile phones pictures did include any camera, not sure if that's what we are about;...............thoughts please.

My suggestion is the following order;

October...........Harvest Time
November.......Autumn Mists
December........Seasonal Greeting

January...........Weird and Wacky
February..........Minimalism
March..............Bridges.

That's 6 months worth, enough for now.

But lets have any suggestions, timings and thoughts for the spring and summer (long time away I know).

I propose to keep the same format as John, which includes; 1 (one) "Like" vote (Please note that!) to be made between the 1st and 14th of the following month; A monthly winner table to be made up, and perhaps some sort of annual award or commendation.....(yeah).

Any further suggestions welcome.

Keep it in the spirit of our hobby, its just fun, any appropriate humour will be very much appreciated............

Are we all happy for these next three monthly challenges?

After the Christmas Theme, again any thoughts about the timed photographs. Only 8 entries so wonder if that restriction was good or not.

Also looking for another 3 subjects to make up a six months worth of challenges.

All feedback appreciated................(ducking now)

Mark - Nothing wrong with the timed idea. I think low response was due to December probably being the most time pressured, and therefore least likely month, to be able to get out and take a special pic.
Happy New Year

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

How about a time limit to within 18 months? Some of us may not have the luxury to find something with the 30 days.

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Seems to me we need more 'PEOPLE' themes !! And I don't include 'selfies' in that.

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Ok will answer that later, but first wonder if the PC Environment has made us all wary of, not snapping people, but showing the results in a 'semi-public' forum. You have to admit that a count of pics here would rank (INPO), Landscape, Buildings, Seascape, Abstract, Flora, Fauna, Inanimate bits & Pieces, et al.


Not so long ago that was different.

Well no one picked that up.... so to continue with 'People' theme, possibly:


People playing Sport
People in Crowds
Friends & Relatives
Musicians
Gigs (December Winner was a VG example of this)
Close Ups/Long Shots
ANYTHING with some Humanity in it

I think we have all become so afraid of the PC brigade we dare not even discuss it!

No problem discussing the subject, No problem with candid photos in the street. As long as they are neither offensive nor derisory.

But get the feeling that some of us (me included) just don't feel too happy snapping strangers, especially big ones But I have found that at large public gatherings such as country shows, no-one is looking or caring anyway.

I will rewrite the Themes tomorrow (busy today) for more thought and suggestions..............

No problem if anyone else wants to write the themes for the next 6 months, I am just the organiser..............

Re: Monthly Photo Challenge - Forthcoming Themes

Thank-you ISO...................

How's about the following;

April Seasonal Colours
May Humanity in Action
June Reflections
July Night lights
August Drama
September Landscape

I was holding back on fruits etc to maybe October (harvest time)

May and August can be interpreted to contain people themes. In fact any of the themes can be interpreted as you like, just need to win votes.

Do we still want time limited themes? Was a bit surprised at Christmas with the low turn out. Personally, my entries are usually taken that month, but maybe it is a bit of an imposition for those workers who might find it difficult to make time.

Seasonal Colours might be time limited theme, and maybe July...........

March theme is Bridges which is time limited...........

Thorts and suggestions before the end of Feb please...
